This program seeks to develop and demonstrate, in severe mechanical shock environments, a new state-of-the-art data recorder for environmental measurements of warhead systems. The developed DSR data record will include 4 internal channels for measuring acceleration, weapon case strain, or pressure and 6 external input digital channels for other user defined measurements. High sampling rates will allow high frequency content (such as pyro events) to be measured and novel shock isolation techniques will be employed to protect the data recorder from shock induced failures. In Phase I, we will develop the mechanical, electrical, and software architectures for the high-shock data recorder system. In Phase II, we propose to manufacture and support testing to validate, in realistic high-velocity penetration and pyro-shock environments, the capabilities of the DSR pyro-technique data recorder. Residual units will be provided to the DoD at the end of the Phase II effort along with a plan for commercialization of the developed data recorder system.
